Effective altruism is built on the simple but unsettling idea that living a fully ethical life involves doing the most good one can. In this course you will examine this idea's philosophical underpinnings; meet remarkable people who have restructured their lives in accordance with it; and think about how effective altruism can be put into practice in your own life.

Excellent material on a much needed topic. The course brought together a good number of strong and important ideas, well backed by research and with very interesting and relevant guest speakers.
Simulataneously impractical learning yet the most practical and important topics you'll consider all your life.
I really enjoyed the course and it went beyond my expectations. The best part for me were the discussions Peter had with the various guests.
This course makes me view ethics and effective charity differently now, more in a highly critical manner!
